District of Columbia Changes Taxation of Municipal Bond Interest, Again


In 2011 the District of Columbia (DC) enacted legislation to tax individual’s, estate’s and trust’s interest income from municipal bonds, with the exception of DC bonds. In June 2012, DC delayed the tax provision to 2013 and only taxed bonds purchased after January 1, 2013.  This month DC has enacted legislation repealing the taxation of income from state and municipal bonds for individuals, estates and trusts.
